Miami Beach Oceanfront Short Sales & REOs


Miami Beach Oceanfront Short Sales

Sunny Isles Oceanfront Views

Miami Beach Oceanfront Short Sales & REOs. So I am frequently asked to show the short sale steals and deals, including REOs and great Miami Beach condo deals alike.

Here are new luxury condos meeting those requests. An ocean view from a condo is manageable in the price range of 500 to 750k. I believe prices could go down in the next 6 to 12 months. It may be nominal as far as continued depreciation along the ocean.

A cash buyer can find the best value in the following 18 months. Buyers needing financing better jump on the bandwagon as interest rates rise. I am working with cash buyers who purchase (typically Bank-Owned REOs & short sales) in today’s waterfront market. My statistics differ from media reports based on analyzing a “micro-location” of only the Miami Beach oceanfront.

Since January 2008, inventory has been shrinking. Since MAY 2008, pending sales have and are doubled over 1st quarter in Sunny Isles real estate, South Beach and Miami Beach. While inventory has decreased in Bal Harbour, pending sales are staying consistent.

I am bullish on our oceanfront market and think the cash buyers I’m representing are purchasing ahead (10 to 20% off list price) of any potential continued depreciating curve… although NO one knows what may occur in the coming months. The buyers I work with today are also buying with at least a 3-year outlook looking at local area expert statistics like you’ll find here.

If you enjoy media reports, remember they report on Miami as a whole. For a long-term hold, you should do quite well. Factoring in all associated costs, I think today’s price per square foot on closed sales is below reproduction costs, with new Sunny Isles oceanfront condos closing at $450-515 psf.

  1. Hi Andrew,
    I would suggest getting financing in order and have a loan commitment to accompany the offer when financing is needed. The majority of clients pay cash for the few great REO’s that are currently out along Miami ‘Beach’. Many banks will take a lower cash offer with lending being so tight. Cash buyers are also abundant so you may be competing against 2 to 3 offers. REO’s generally make it tough for anyone else to sell as the prices are typically 20% less than the competition. You will sometimes find interiors ripped out by the previous owner and needing new kitchen appliances & lighting. There are a handful of excellent new REO’s in North Bay Village and a few along the beaches depending on the price point of comfort. Contact me direct for real estate conversation at 305-978-7704 and warm regards.

  2. I don’t live in Miami and have never been there, and that does sound a bit spendy. Then again, it’s such a beautiful view and I’m sure I would never get sick of it :p How relaxing! I can’t complain!
